Injectables

We offer multiple treatment options that address wrinkles from a variety of approaches. During your consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan that may include one or more of the following neurotoxin options:

Wrinkle Relaxers

Wrinkle relaxers (commonly known as botox or dysport) are used for cosmetic procedures to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. When injected in small, controlled doses by trained professionals, they block the nerve signals to the muscles, causing them to relax. This smooths out wrinkles in the skin.

We offer both Dysport and Botox at Pine & River Aesthetics and all providers are highly trained to safely and effectively administer these wrinkle relaxers.

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein that has the capability of preventing unwanted muscle action. In it’s pure form it is a toxin, but for cosmetic use it is a safe, highly-diluted injectable solution that relaxes muscles.

The way BOTOX® Cosmetic works is similar to the idea of putting a cut-off switch between an electrical cord and a lamp. Electrical energy must reach the lamp before the light comes on. Muscles work the same way by receiving signals from the nerves. If you’re angry, your nerves signal your frown muscles to contract.

What is Dysport®?

This is a long-lasting prescription injection that works to smooth out the wrinkles and lines in your face. Primarily, it is used to target the frown lines between your eyebrows. This is a common concern for adults of all ages as you can frown without realizing it. Before you know it, there are deep lines between your eyes that make you look much older than you are.

What does it treat?
Although most people think of treating the forehead and/or crow’s feet only. Wrinkle relaxers such as botox and dysport can be used over many muscles in the face and even neck to target signs of aging or balance subtle asymmetries.

Side Effects & Procedure
Redness and minimal swelling are expected and should resolve after a few hours. Bruising may also occur but is uncommon. Pain for this procedure is minimal.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable gels that can rejuvenate the lips, cheekbones, jowls, nasolabial folds, and balance the face by providing volume that has been lost with aging or perhaps was never there. Filler treatments are minimally invasive treatments that can last from six months to two years or more.

The fillers we carry at Pine & River are made of Hyaluronic acid, a substance normally found in the skin that helps keep it plump. The hyaluronic acid molecule is hydrophilic, or “water-loving,” a feature that allows it to bind to water to provide long-lasting results. This restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct, smooth and plump, returning the face to a youthful fullness.

At Pine & River Aesthetics, we aim for a very natural result. Many patients fear that dermal fillers will result in them looking “overdone” or unnatural. Our injectors are highly trained to provide the results you are looking for, but to retain the features that make you, YOU!

Restylane

Restylane is made of Hyaluronic acid, a substance normally found in the skin that helps keep it plump. The hyaluronic acid molecule is hydrophilic, or “water-loving,” a feature that allows it to bind to water to provide long-lasting results. Restylane restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct, smooth and plump, returning the face to a youthful fullness.

The RHA® Collection of designer fillers

Dynamic wrinkles and folds appear in areas of the face that move repetitively. Your face is dynamic, making millions of movements and micro-movements every day. Movements like squinting, frowning, laughing, and talking create dynamic wrinkles and folds. These wrinkles and folds can be difficult to treat because dermal fillers may cause the area to appear stiff or unnatural when the face moves. RHA® Collection is designed to be resilient enough to adapt to your facial movement, which may provide a more natural look at rest and in motion.

How do they work?
Dermal fillers use a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a chemical found in every cell in your body. Since Dermal fillers are injected into the deep layers of your facial tissue, they can smooth the appearance of moderate wrinkles and replace lost tissue volume. Dermal fillers replicate the body’s own hyaluronic production to provide fullness in the areas they are injected.

What can I expect?
Results from dermal fillers are immediate. How long the results last can depend on the type of filler, the area treated, the patient’s metabolism, and lifestyle factors. On average, they last 6-18 months, but recent studies have shown they even may last much longer in certain areas of the face.

Swelling, redness and bruising is expected near the injection sites and typically resolve within 1 week. Final results may not be apparent for up to 4 weeks following filler injection, as it takes time for the fillers to integrate with your natural tissues. Lumps and bumps are common during this timeframe and will resolve.

Sculptra/Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA)

Unlike traditional dermal fillers, Sculptra works gradually by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production over time. Collagen is a protein that helps maintain skin structure and elasticity, but its production decreases with age.

Sculptra is designed to stimulate collagen production in the skin, leading to gradual and natural-looking volume restoration.

What does it treat?

Sculptra is commonly used to treat facial volume loss, especially in the cheeks, temples, and jawline. It can improve hollow or sunken areas of the face, creating a more youthful appearance.

What can I expect?

Sculptra provides gradual results. Patients typically require multiple sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart depending on their age. The gradual improvement noted with Sculptra helps to ensure a natural-looking result. The results are long-lasting due to Sculptra’s collagen stimulating properties. Results can last up to 2 years or longer with yearly maintenance.

Is it safe?

Sculptra has been approved by regulatory authorities for cosmetic use and has a well-established safety profile when administered by trained healthcare professionals, such as our staff.

Temporary side effects are similar to any other injectable treatment. Redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection sites may occur. These usually subside within a few days.
